Srinagar: Authorities imposed restrictions in Srinagar and some north Kashmir parts of the Valley on Friday to prevent JRL-called protests on the death anniversary of Parliament attack convict, Mohammad Afzal Guru.
Afzal was hanged and buried inside the Tihar Jail in Delhi on February 9, 2013.
The protest was called to observe his death anniversary and to reiterate the family’s demand for his mortal remains.
According to the police, the restrictions were imposed in old city areas of Srinagar, the uptown area of Maisuma and in some north Kashmir areas.
Joint Resistance Leaders (JRL) Syed Ali Geelani and Mirwaiz Umer Farooq continue to remain under house arrest while Muhammad Yasin Malik has been lodged in the Central Jail.
Contingents of police and paramilitary Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) in full riot gear have been deployed in the restriction imposed areas.
Train services between north Kashmir’s Baramulla town and Bannihal town in the Jammu region have been suspended as a precautionary measure.
